Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our more favorable scores in that category, with a score of B+. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.65625 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.59 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing rating assesses many datapoints, however, the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our final category, we gave this facility a D in our short-term care category. This was the facility's least impressive category rating. Unfortunately, this score hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this place offered less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 40.2 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
